Netflix movies and shows: Da 5 Bloods

Da 5 Bloods hit Netflix on June 12 and stars Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isaiah Whitlock Jr., Jean Reno, and Chadwick Boseman. If you missed this when it first came out this summer and now want to see one of Chadwick Boseman’s last films, now is the perfect time to watch it.

The film follows four Black veterans who return to Vietnam to find the remains of their fallen friend and fellow soldier. They are also searching for the gold they helped him hide when they were there during the Vietnam War.

Why do they decide to look for him after all those years? A landslide uncovered a crashed plane and they think it’s where their friend, Norman, crashed. So, they all head to Ho Chi Minh City, hire a tour guide and meet a Frenchman who is willing to help them smuggle the gold out of the country.

As they begin their journey, past trauma and problems come to light. They are dropped off by their guide and he informs them he will pick them up in a few days. As you can imagine, that does not mean good things for the guys.

The first night, Paul finds a gun Otis has and becomes suspicious of why he would need it when they are just among friends.

Eventually, they find the gold spread across the side of the hill as well as Norman’s remains. They pray over him and while Eddie reveals that he could use the money from the gold, they stick to their original plan and give the money to other Black people in the US.

Unfortunately, once they finish their mission, getting back is not as easy as they first thought. With land mines spread across the route they’re traveling, danger lurks around every corner. There is also post-traumatic stress and paranoia in play that causes even more issues within the group.

They also have to deal with other people looking for the gold and who are willing to do just about anything to get it.

Additionally, lots of secrets are revealed from their time in Vietnam. How did Norman actually die? It wasn’t in a way you might expect. Besides all the action, Da 5 Bloods shows the bond between these men and what they are willing to do for each other despite their own trauma.
